Traditional Lap Pools

Many Endless Pool customers are looking for a convenient, clean and private place to swim. Unfortunately replicating a traditional lap pool in a residential setting, whether that be indoors or out, is extremely expensive and disruptive to the yard & home. Traditional lap pool construction can run $50,000 or more depending on the location and features. Below you'll find some easy side-by-side comparisons showing that an Endless Pool is not only the more affordable option to lap pool ownership, but the intelligent choice, for yourself and the environment.

We offer four versions of the Endless Pool:

  • Original Endless Pool, a steel panel pool which provides maximum design flexibility and can be installed in new or existing spaces.
  • Endless Pool Swim Spa, a one piece acrylic pool that combines the industry's leading current with spa seating.
  • Fastlane Pool, an inexpensive, soft sided pool that's ideal for training or to setup in the backyard.
  • WaterWell Pool, similar to the Original Endless Pool but without the current generator - ideal for therapy.
